About Bank Hoops

“The Bank: The Michigan High School Basketball Player Databank” was founded by then college student Stephen Bell in 1996. Today Bank Hoops is an NCAA-certified men’s basketball scouting service with nearly 150 client schools at every level across the country. Bell is the only scout in Michigan with both a professional journalism (honored for Michigan Associated Press’ “Best Sports Writing” 2006) and coaching (over career 200 wins with Parallel 45 and ACB/Bank Hoops) background.

Bank Hoops also plays host to the state’s longest-running instruction/exposure event, the Bank Hoops All-State Minicamp, as well as the Bank Hoops Underclassman All-State Minicamp, Bank Hoops Spring Minicamp and Steve Bell/Rashad Phillips College Guard Workshop.

  1. Steve is by far the best in the business. There is no one even close. He is unique that he is a sports writer who coaches players, develops talent, and is a talent evaluator at all levels.
    He is clear, concise, and honest in his assessments.
    He understands that the game of basketball is not about dancing dribbling, and launching up three’s, it’s about making the right decisions. Playing the game with the body and mind..
    That’s why he is the best.
